In an idle moment the other day, I thought I'd see how far the renmown
of the TEI had spread through academia. So I looked for titles referring

TITLE: TEI to Address Digital Imaging Guidelines.
JOURNAL NAME: The Tax executive.
VOL, ISSUE: Volume 48, Number 1
PAGES: pp. 8
PUB DATE: January 01

AUTHOR: Sprang, Ginny
TITLE: The Traumatic Experiences Inventory (TEI): A Test of
JOURNAL NAME: Journal of psychopathology and behavioral assessment.
VOL, ISSUE: Volume 19, Number 3
PAGES: pp. 257
J ALT NAME: Journal of behavioral assessment
After which, the following came as no surprise:
AUTHOR: Murata, J; Takeuchi, T; Suzuki, Y; Sanada, N; Fukuda, Y
TITLE: Decomposition of triethylindium (TEI) on GaP(001) surface
studied by TPD, XPS and RHEED

TITLE: Reports - The Technological Education Institutes (TEI) in
Greece and Their Libraries

PAGES: pp. 51
Everyone knows of course, about http://www.tei.org (Tax Executives
Institute), and www.tei.com (an altogether spiffier website owned by
Thermoguard Equipment Inc. who also seem to have grabbed
There's a great literature of misinformation to be built here, methinks.
